How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Poynton?


Several law firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges may be added into the small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Your conveyancing quote must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra charges found in terms and conditions should be clearly defined.
